The Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease exists to bring discovery, knowledge, and effective treatments to patients with illnesses that are caused by acquired dysregulation of both the immune system and the nervous system, often resulting in lifelong disease and disability.

Our goals include:

  • Facilitate and Advance patient care
  • Research the pathophysiology of neuro-immune diseases such as ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, atypical MS, and autism
  • Develop therapeutics, diagnostics and prevention strategies for this spectrum of diseases
  • Advance and support medical education and physician training
